AGEs is now known to be a cause of cancer and many chronic diseases, including: type 2 diabetes, heart disease, painful joints, ED, cataracts, and even wrinkling of the skin. Our bodies make some AGEs as an unavoidable consequence of living, and we eat foods that contain a wide range of volumes of AGEs. Avoiding the AGEs in our food is the easiest way to control the accumulation of AGES.Read More
I have a number of amazing episodes coming up (mental strength, CBD, avoiding glycation/AGEs, PEMF and more) but I haven’t been able to get any of them ready. It’s been too long since I published anything so I thought I’d share an great one from last year done with one of my favorite people, Dr…Read More
Physical intelligence is the brain’s ability to figure out how to perform physical skills better and better. It learns by doing.
But we forget. We lose skills we don’t use. That results in losing basic life skills if we withdraw from life. The more we pull back from activities that might result in injury the less capable we become over time. We have to find a way to stretch ourselves in what we already know or in learning new activities.
Exercise is not enough. We need unpredictable environments. An opponent across the net. An unstable trail. Something that engages the brain in adapting skills to accommodate new information. We retain physical skills and we exercise the brain.Read More
The reason we can feel infrared light is the infrared wavelengths can penetrate through clothing and through our skin and even through bone, down into our muscles and organs.

A bike is a marvelous extension of the human body. Riding a bike is a like full-body meditation. When you do it right you are immersed in the present….lost in the pleasure of your body working well. That is, as long as your bike doesn’t cause pain. Some people never have problems but others have to struggle to get the right combination of gear, body function, and set up. For those of us in that last category, a good bike fitter is priceless.
So why is good bike fitting so hard to come by? It turns out that it isn’t hard if you know what to look for.
Kevin Schmidt knows bikes, and he knows bodies. He’s a good friend to the cyclist.Read More
Efficiency in training, in health, and in life comes of finding solutions that solve multiple problems at once. If only there was one thing that improved: athletic performance, recovery from exercise, lower blood pressure, less plaque buildup in arteries, and improved immune function? It is called Nitric Oxide, and you have much less of it now than you did when you were young. The good news is you can get more, and the answer is simple. It isn’t easy, but it is simple.Read More
